Before you go below are few points and tips about Pocket Knife Safety:

A pocket knife is a rite of passage for young backpackers and scouts alike and teaching them how to use it property is a prerequisite to accepting the responsibility.

First, make sure they know exactly how the knife works before using it. Specifically, how it opens, closes, the different blades and tools – these are important first steps. Once these are understood, your charge can move on to the dos and don’ts.

Do:

  • Practice opening and closing the knife until they are comfortable doing so safely.
  • Always carry the pocket knife with the blade closed.
  • Keep your knife clean and dry.

Don’t:

  • Use your knife as a hammer. It’s a knife not a hammer.
  • Throw your pocket knife. Its a pocket knife, not a throwing knife. Someone will get hurt.
  • Take the knife apart. Doing this will render the knife unsafe to use and will leave you without our super protection warranty.

 

General Outdoor Knife Safety Tips:

Regardless of what type of knife your scout uses these tip will help keep them safe. If they’ll be outdoors a lot, here are some general tips they should know.

  • Always cut away from your your body and hands, never towards.
  • If you get tired while using your knife, take a break.
  • Always keep the first aid kit nearby.
  • Never walk with an open knife. Remember the blood circle. Make sure it’s folded shut before you take one step.

Sure knives can be dangerous but everyone should learn how to use them safely.  

Remember to ease them into it, after all they didn't start with the sharp pencil, they started with the big fat crayon.

Happy Carving.
